Maybe not exotica, but definitely exotic.

Are we looking at the same model and photoshoot on these two albums?








Yep, same shoot, same Warner!
Lesser-known shots similar to the Denny releases pop up once in a while - I made a list of the Warner covers that I know of up
here.

How 'bout:

Though it ONLY seems apparent with the knowledge of the background story, I really like the fact that (as I mentioned in my earlier post) she is holding her arms and hands in a "I am freezing" position, and clenching her teeth, -the story being that these waters are icy Lake Arrowhead.

This is from a compilation LP (in Stereo) called 'Beyond The Reef'. I don't own a digital camera, but do own a scanner, so the full album cover isn't depicted. However, the important aspect of the album cover -- the girl -- is. And what a lovely girl she is! And though she isn't perhaps 100% Oriental or Polynesian, she isn't a Caucasion girl made up to look like one.

OK let's see if I can get into the mix without stirring it up...
Blonds


yeah I know the shawl & dress may not be very exotica but she has that look in her eyes


How about redheads?



and then some...




And then just for a little swizzle, exotica or not...?

I'm gonna have to say no the second one (and unlike Sven, I even have a little trouble with the first one).
The first one at least has the chair and the Hawaiian-ish cloth.

And she's naked.

The second is just a girl at a bar in modern clothing, drinking her drink and smoking a cigarette. I believe her looking at the camera is not enough to call her an Exotica Girl. Hot date yes, but Exotica Girl no.

But I like how the camera angle is right at table height - like the photographer/drinking partner is starting to slide under the table.
Like she's outdrunk him.

Before the WWII G.I.'s returned from the Pacific with tales of Polynesia, 1930's America looked to the "Dark Continent" for its Exotica inspirations.

Also why haven't we seen pictures of Dorothy Lamour yet ?

I don't know everyone, this one has always caught my attention:




By the way, the music on this album is, well, so-so at best. . . If anyone is really interested, I could point to a rapidshare for it. .

If Walmart was around waaay back then, I don't think they would have sold some of these albums in their stores.

That sweetheart of Peru,
Yma Sumac was both the artist and cover girl. After all, she was an Incan princess (or was she really just a housewife from New Jersey?).

Best part of this thread, seeing some great pictures I haven't seen before. Second best part, going through records, books, playing cards, etc haven't looked at in a while looking for appropriate images.






Gauguin doesn't seem to pop up on TC as often as he should


and just because Sven asked for "her gypsy temperament makes her seem dangerous and seductive" back in the first post

The Gauguin models are possibly the first Exotica girls ever, I agree. But what do generic nude playing cards have to do with Exotica or Polynesian pop!? We might as well scan all books with 50s and 60s nude photos and fill this thread with them.

Please be a little bit more discerning, folks.

Ok. Not really, but in a weird way, kind of. If Annette

Here she is a little closer to the topic







I guess there should be an Annette thread.
Nice thread Sven.
